LONDON — On line review platform Trustpilot said Monday it plans to sell stocks in London, at a stock offering which helps shore up the town’s standing as a financial hub and destination for technology firms after Brexit.
While not yet lucrative, Trustpilot’s net loss narrowed the past year since its earnings rose to $102 million. It is aiming to get a market evaluation of 1 billion pounds ($1.4 billion), according to a individual near the firm who wasn’t permitted to talk publicly.
Folks are able to utilize Trustpilot to openly leave comments for companies. Among Trustpilot’s selling points is that it does not allow companies to select and choose which reviews are printed on, or deleted from the stage, as a means to boost transparency and trust.
The business also utilizes technology to weed out unethical articles. Last year it took down 2.2 million testimonials deemed to be fake or deceptive, 70 percent of which were eliminated by automatic systems.
